DALLAS (KDAF) — Mi Cocina families who hall upon hard times now have a new resource to help them out. It’s called the Mi Familia Fund, established by M Crowd Restaurant Group.

To support the fun and other core focuses of M Crow, Mi Cocina holds unique and spirited fundraisers that are central to this mission, including the Mambo Miles race.

This year marked the second annual Mambo Miles race. It was held on July 23 and officials say this year’s fundraiser shattered all expectations, raising more than 30,000.
